Hello all,
I have been wondering something for the last couple of weeks,

Brown Luggage and bags Bag Waist Beige


Is the shown item above something that cruiser/touring riders would use at all? I have a certain use in mind for it (CCW), and it fits perfectly, since any other location in my body would imprint/shown. What do you guys think? I have saddle bags in my bike, but if something sudden happens it would be really hard/almost impossible to reach out to the saddlebags while riding, anyways I want your thoughts in this matter..

My friend conceal carry’s in a murse like that. Would I, F no!
The only reason why I am thinking of it is because, as I said before, it might imprint/shown..I have to try and see if maybe, if I place in the center of my waist, in the back, clothing might conceal it enough..gotta try it, not fan of the murse either….🥴

I carry using a Tulster Oath IWB at 4 o'clock. With a loose tucked shirt and vest, it doesn't print. I know a couple of riders who use something like what you show. Like Camak5, I wouldn't.

I strongly recommend against carrying a sidearm at the center of your back as you described. An impact from a fall (on foot or wheels) could cause spinal damage. You might explore other holster options which offer better concealment. mawilsonWCR's recommendation looks to be a good one. The Milt Sparks VersaMax 2 IWB holster works best for me, even for my more cumbersome pistols.

The drop leg bag might be useful for other items, but will attract attention to anyone who suspects you might be carrying.

You might want to try a "paddle holster". No threading through your belt--just push the "paddle" in where ever you want to carry. I can carry my H & K USP Compact .45 "appendix style" at about the 2 O'clock position (I am left handed) while riding and with a loose fitting shirt with the shirt tail not tucked in it is not noticeable. And while riding I am generally leaning forward a bit which helps to keep the gun from printing. If I am walking around or even sitting at a table eating I wear it at about the 9 O'clock position and my left arm hanging down covers any printing.

I carry IWB all the time with just a loose fitting shirt and never have worried about printing. The only holster I've used is from Crossbreed...got one for my .380, 9mm and 45ACP and love them all

You are right about the unwanted attention, did not think of that for moment...in reality it looks like those old west drop leg holster, the only thing missing is the shape of the weapon....:unsure:

I have decided to buy have both a "paddle" holster which @KYJoe mentioned and the Crossbreed Reckoning holster (which BTW was on sale with 20% OFF) which @DanJ mentioned as well, will try both and see which one is more comfortable to carry a G19 (which I know is not the most comfortable size for CC) but it is what I have....in the future maybe I go with a compact G and then it will be easier to carry...Thanks to everyone for the time taken to help and comment, I will post an update once enough time has pass by using either...

Unless you're super skinny trying to conceal a full size pistol a good IWB holster won't print enough for the usual person to notice. Guys I've worked with for years at my shop didn't know I carry every IWB day and my T-shirts aren't even baggy. When I ride I use a Verscarry OWB for my Sig P365. Under a flannel it disappears completely and doesn't dig into my side. I won't get off into the weeds about how much training time should be mandatory to draw fast from concealment, but fumbling with that bag thing to draw would be highly inefficient.

I normally carry a Springfield Hellcat in this holster...I always opt for the "J" clips that replace the metal over the belt clips

Thank you for your comment 🙏, for real, I know that "murse" is not ideal at all, just thought that somehow it would be "easier" to draw from than from an IWB holster, but I am happy with options chosen that I mentioned above, let see what time "says"

Do you feel that the J-Clips are easier when mounting the set up over the belt?

I see, the difference is that the J clips "holds" to the bottom of the belt instead of ON top of it...🧐

Do you mind telling me which specific model of holster do you use? There are quite a few..:unsure:

The "J" clips actually go under your belt so they are less visible and also keeps the holster more secure when drawing your weapon...found the below video that kinda explains, I believe they are using the brown belt to show contrast...I use a 2" black belt so they are pretty hard to see

Flo.Rider, I forgot to mention the Holsterama belt slide holster. Posting a link below. Click on it and look at all the pics. This holster can be either right or left handed and can be worn either IWB or OWB. This has to be the most overall versatile holster I have ever seen. They only make 2 sizes and of course I have both. I have a BUNCH of semi-autos and also some revolvers that fit very well in one or the other. But, there is a small problem I have with them. Because a portion of the muzzle is exposed, when I am wearing one of them at about the 2 O'clock position the muzzle will rub on one or the other of the two rivets securing the small "watch" or "change" pocket on my jeans. Discovered this early on and was able to rub off the scuff before it became serious. And, it is seldom I wear anything except jeans so my daily wear holster is usually a paddle holster.

I'm somewhat jealous of you guys that can carry IWB. None of my jeans or regular slacks have enough room in them for a IWB holster. I never really thought I wore my pants too tight but I just can't make an IWB holster work for me.
